The song, along with its own choreographed dance routine, were officially presented. Produced and composed by Tim Koldenhof Events B.V. (Allan Eshuijs, Nino Lucarelli, Tim Koldenhof, Martijn Hoiting and Juvat Westendorp), the song celebrates the diversity and strength of our global gymnastics community coming together at the World Gymnaestrada in Amsterdam, where a feeling of unity wil be predominant.
“For me, the Gymnaestrada anthem ‘Colors Unite’ represents the essence of our event and the spirit of unity it fosters’; explains director Tim Koldenhof. “Just like the vibrant colors that adorn our performances, this song celebrates the diversity and strength of our global gymnastics community. It reminds us that when we come together, hand in hand, and showcase our unique talents and passions, we create a powerful symphony of joy, inspiration, and connection. ‘Colors Unite’ embodies the inclusive and uplifting nature of the Gymnaestrada, where love, harmony, and the pursuit of excellence unite us all. It is a reminder that, through gymnastics, we transcend boundaries and embrace the magic of collective celebration. Together, let’s ignite the stage, share our stories, and leave an indelible mark on the hearts of all who witness our colorful journey.”
Allan Eshuijs, composer of the song adds: “As a composer and lyricist, I have learned that in order to let my creative process flow in a natural way I need to be aware of my surroundings, because stories are everywhere – in all parts of life. In the same way, when I was asked to create an anthem for the Gymnaestrada I started imagining this huge event where a feeling of unity would be predominant. All these people from all over the world would get together to share and celebrate their passion for gymnastics. A passion which goes beyond any nationality, religion, race or gender. Together with my co-writer I wanted to create a feel-good song, focusing on inclusivity instead of diversity, with a brighter future for all human beings where love will have a chance to multiply and heal our souls.”
